#2449227 It might be Illich, not Holland

Posted by T.Low on 31 October 2013 - 02:58 AM

Today I got to listen to a lot of Red Wings talk on Vancouver's team 1040

Doug McLean talked about his time in Detroit as assistant GM to Brian Murray. He said it was an amazing organization to be a part of. He said his first day on the job was the day after Fedorov defected. Amazing times for sure.

But he said two things of significance relevant to the way Holland does business.

McLean and Murray were called down to the Fox theater to see Mike Illitch. The security guard said to them, " you're going up to the 10th floor to see Mr. Ilitch. If you come back down, you will be a changed person for the rest of your life."

McLean said that he and Murray we're about to trade Jimmy Carson for Paul Coffey and Ilitch really grilled them about it. Illitch loved Carson and did not want to see him go.

The second thing he said was that Illitch fired Murray on a Friday afternoon, and Murray came out and told McLean he was fired also.

Monday morning 8 AM Illitch called McLean and said you were fired Friday afternoon. And McLean said yeah I know. Ilitch said you still have one year left on your deal. If you don't get another job by then, I'll give you another job.

Illitch is the problem. He treats these guys like family and hates to see any of them go!

I'll be there. It's been a while. Last time I was there a little kid had a sign that read "Igor, Pasha, Pride of Russia" and Datsyuk flipped a puck over the glass to him.


#2448744 Sky train to Canuck game

Posted by T.Low on 29 October 2013 - 11:26 PM

I guess we'll be parking at King George Station and taking the Skytrain in . We're coming from Bellingham.

We ll, now my buddy says lets just dri ve to Rogers, traffic shouldn't be too bad.

Any advice? Thoughts?

Thanks

Here's a novel idea change the system, because with this team the puck possession system just doesn't work. The team just doesn't have the players to rely on possessing the puck for long stretches, time to admit that fact and adapt. No more time for denial all denial gets you is run into the ground by subpar injured teams like the rangers.

 

 

You mean we still play puck possession?  Hmm, didn't recognize it...




#2447209 Edler Suspension Aftermath.

Posted by T.Low on 23 October 2013 - 12:15 PM

In my opinion, no he did not target the head.

The problem is, Edlers most successful option is to get there first and block Hertls path to the puck. But of course Hertl is leading with his head so any contact could very well be head contact

If Edler would have gone straight for the puck, then he would have taken the brunt of the impact. I can't see that play being taught any other way.

This is why it will be virtually impossible to get head contact out of the game. Head shots maybe. Head contact, No way.

If Franzen had as much hutzpah as Elaine, he'd be a perennial 40 goal gal

What legit top line Winger was that again, I have such a hard time keeping them all straight since there was so many of them this off season that were available.


You know, that top line winger he should've gotten!

I think fourth line while he's getting his game conditioning up.


#2446463 Brendan Smith

Posted by T.Low on 20 October 2013 - 11:01 AM

I still think our best bet is to make him a forward.

Package a forward and whatever For a good D man and move Smith upfront ah la Brett Burns.

A couple years down the road you've got Smith Andy Mantha or Smith Helm Mantha

He's got the tools and the skills and enough speed, he's just mis- cast as a defenseman.


#2445841 The Daniel Alfredsson Appreciation Thread

Posted by T.Low on 18 October 2013 - 10:45 AM

I like Bert on the top line for most of the game and then switching it up with Alfie. I think they can make the switch seamlessly, but it really throws off the defense

When that line scored last night all I could think of was " old guys rule "when they school the young guys.---Me being an old guy, of course.

The way Zetterberg has come out of the gate, it's as if he wants to make sure Alfie gets the Stanley Cup on his watch. All of Sweden will love Z for getting Alfie the Cup.

wow what a big d-bag this announcer is.


I had to listen to that ****** bag last night on Center ice. He changed his tune right away, sounded like his producer got in his ear and told him what a moron he was.

And before that I perused HF boards Colorado to learn a little more about the team ( as if) All they did was trash the city of Detroit.

Pure class on both fronts.

Well guys, you got your wish.  An injury to open up cap space and a roster spot.
 
 
I hope you're all ****ing happy now.


It's pretty early in the season, but you've got a good chance for stupid post of the year.

Childhood?  Now you make me feel old.  It was a big part of my middleagedhood.
 
Go Wings.  Crush Roy. 


You'll always be a young woman to me: I would always play on the little league all star team with Pat LaFontaine while growing up.

#2445048 Lineup Crunch: Who's going?

Posted by T.Low on 16 October 2013 - 07:17 PM

I am really starting to worry about Holland. If he is this loyal to Sammy, what's it going to be like when Babcock starts losing?

If Babbs keeps Tatar on the bench much longer, I'll be ready for Blashill.
